Type of Research Project
- Clinical Project with Laboratory work
What is the background of the project?
Chronic dermatoses are the pressing issue in dermatology nowadays. They have an impact on patient’s emotional and physical well-being and can cause temporary or permanent disability. Some of the chronic dermatoses can affect not only skin but vitals over time which cause multidisciplinary approach to treatment. The project is aimed to introduce students to the specificities amd morbidity rate of chronic dermatoses in Sverdlovsk Region. Students will be able to report a rare dermatosis clinical case.
What is the aim of the project?
The aim of the project is to prepare case report(s) based on the physical examination of the patients with dermatosis and using the profound literature review.
What techniques and methods are used?
First of all, students will participate in the everyday clinical work in a dermatology department including physical examination of the patients. Students will be introduced to the basics of dermatoscopy. Other methods are also available for differential diagnosis such as mycological and bacteriological examination. An important feature of this project is an attending consultations where students can find a material for a rare dermatosis case report. Using literature review and data of the physical examination students will have to prepare and report a clinical case in the end of the project.
What is the role of the student?
- The tasks will be done under supervision
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
Statistical data analysis (using the dermatology reporting forms established in the Sverdlovsk region) ● Physical examination of patients in the dermatovenerologic dispensary (during outpatient reception with a dermatologist) ● Literature review on the research topic (using PubMed, MEDLINE, Embase, e-library, Google Scholar databases) ● Dermatoscopy (during outpatient reception with a dermatologist) ● Mycological examination (working in laboratory in dermatovenerologic dispensary) ● Bacteriological examination (working in laboratory in dermatovenerologic dispensary) ● Preparing scientific report with presentation of rare dermatosis
